Hyderabad: The government"s attempt to dewater city lakes could affect replenishment of aquifers and leave the city short of groundwater in the summer. The lakes are being dewatered for Mission Kakatiya. Experts like Dr B.V. Subba Rao said lakes are the best for continuous replenishment of the aquifers.

The city cannot collect more rainwater that has run off from the roads," Dr Rao told Deccan Chronicle.

Hyderabad: The government"s proposal to scrap Government Order 111, which creates a 10-km pollution-free zone around the Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, has resulted in rampant encroachment of the channels that bring water to the two reservoirs. Though successive governments have systematically damaged the reservoirs" infrastructure, the present dispensation has decided to bring the axe down on GO 111 claiming it was hindering development in the area. Cutting across party lines, almost every politician, industrialist and businessman owns establishments in violation of GO 111. Due to the damage to the inlet channels caused by the encroachments, the two reservoirs, created a century ago to prevent floods and provide drinking water to the city, did not receive any water though the state received heavy rainfall this season.

Hyderabad: As predicted by the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), rains continued to lash the city on Thursday afternoon, which had a domino effect on the traffic as usual.  Afternoon showers left office goers concerned as to how they would get back home from work.
